Abstract of Testimony for the January 1978 Committee on
Science and Technology
Hearing on Future Space Programs from
Dr. Bruce Friedman, Chairman of the
B'nai B'rith Energy Committee of Maryland
The B'nai B'rith Energy Committee of Maryland feels that an aggres
sive space industrialization effort by the United States of America is of
compelling importance. The Energy Committee strongly urges that the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) budget be increased
annually by 20% for every year of the ten year period commencing with
FY 1979 in order to allow NASA to vigorously develop space-based energy
and energy-related options. Further, the Energy Committee unequivocally
supports House Concurrent Resolutions 451 and 447 with their request
for an assessment "of developing as a national goal for the year 2000
the first manned structures in space for the conversion of solar energy
and other extraterrestrial resources to the peaceable and practical use
of human beings everywhere."
